Drawing drop-in with Outdoor Studios
1st August 2018 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
As part of No.34’s exhibition of The Ash Project‘s School Programme, arts organisation Outdoor Studios is holding a one-day Drawing session where you can capture the natural beauty of Ash trees. This activity is open to everyone, so why not come along and create something from nature!
You will have the chance to:
- draw Ash leaves by experimenting with various natural materials collected from Kent woodlands;
- use split Ash logs to draw your leaf with charcoal and inks;
- add your art to the growing book of Ash leaves, or take it home to admire!
Outdoor Studios worked with pupils from 15 schools across Kent to create the artworks in the exhibition.
Each school visited a Kent County Council Country Park to view and explore the Ash trees and worked with artists Martin Brockman, Andy Evans, Amanda Thesiger and Gemma Gottelier to respond to issues surrounding Ash dieback in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and to explore the wider historical and environmental impacts.
